Abstract

This book is a Coast Alliance project which could stretch to a dozen more volumes to engage the reader. We are proud to launch this first effort. A special editorial committee conceived the book, selected its distinguished Scholars and invited them to each contribute an essay. ... This publication contains a series of six essays on the coast. Topics covered include: rising seas, shifting shores, oil and fish, science and public policy, marine mammals, politics of birds, ecology of the coast.
